About Our Presenters

Deborah Sheehan, M.A., and Jane King, M.A., are experienced spiritual directors and retreat leaders. Both are adjunct lecturers in the Creighton University Christian Spirituality Program. They have been practicing and teaching BioSpiritual Focusing for many years.

"God looked at everything God had made and found it very good" (Gen 1:31).

BioSpiritual Focusing is a way of opening the whole of ourselves -- mind, body, and spirit -- to a deeper connectedness with God, others, and self. Join us to learn more about how gently being with what is present within your embodied self can open the door to a deeper story -- and to a greater sense of wholeness. 

This practice is simple yet profound. It can be helpful for anyone -- young child to senior. It requires no more than showing up and a willingness to engage contemplatively with what is going on within. And the potential for transformation and growth unfolds in the process.
